Texas chemical plant fire spurs massive evacuation

Nov 28, 2019 15:29 IST

About 60,000 people have been evacuated from the area surrounding Port Neches in Texas after a series of huge explosions at a chemical plant. Massive explosions about 13 hours apart tore through the chemical plant on Wednesday, leaving three workers injured. The blasts blew out windows and doors of nearby homes and prompted a mandatory evacuation of a seven-kilometre radius from the plant. Officials say there is no estimate yet for the amount of damage to the surrounding neighbourhoods and they are not sure when evacuated people would be able to return to their homes.
